Improve health: The effects of a multivitamin will vary, based on your individual nutrient needs.If you already have optimal vitamins & minerals from an excellent diet (which is unlikely!), a vitamin won't do much.But many have deficiencies, in which case taking a good multivit can improve a wide variety of symptoms (deficiencies can cause almost any symptom). It may also help prevent a wide variety of illnesses.

Soft finger nails: The commonest causes are repeated immersing your nails in water. Iron deficiency is another possibility. Taking the supplement, biotin, is considered by some to promote healthy nails. Wear gloves when working with water.
